Coppell switches defender targets

Reading boss Steve Coppell is said to be closing in on the signing of a new left back but it will not be Leicester's Joe Mattock.

The highly-rated Mattock had been strongly linked with a move to the club but he is not the target that Coppell is closing in on.

Instead reports claim it could be Dagenham's left-back Scott Griffiths, who is likely to be in action against the Royals in the Carling Cup tonight and has been watched by scouts.

Coppell told the Evening Post: "We are still searching and I think we are getting nearer - something could be done before the weekend.

"If we do something it will probably be the only signing we make, but I can't say for sure."
